Hack Miramar: Your suburb needs you
Posted on 23-Aug-2014 14:12 by Bill Bennett. | Tags Filed under: News.


Ian Apperley wants geeks living in Wellington’s Eastern Suburbs to work on problems like traffic, consultation and free internet access at Hack Miramar.

It’s a smart suburb project, which Apperley says is a mini version of a smart city. He says:

The weekend doesn’t have to be exclusive to technology ideas, for example, teams could focus on urban design issues, but the overall emphasis is on the use of technology such as sensors and cloud to create solutions to issues around the theme of  movement and transport.

The event is scheduled for the weekend of November 1, 2 and will take place in Miramar.
